Sefer Krasnik (Book of Krasnik):
<http://www2.jewishgen.org/yizkor/krasnik/Kra546.html>
<http://www2.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Krasnik/kra545.html>

shows this name but also many:

Wajsberg
Wajnberg
Wajntraub
Wajsbrot
Wajsman
etc.

So I would suggest Wajsenberg to be the local Krasnik version of:

WEISENBERG. (Google 10.800 hits)

And not of Waisenberg.
